Working with Industry
Based in Ireland, we are the internationally-focused Science Foundation Ireland research center for chronic and rare neurological disease linking innovative neurotherapeutics development with genomic and biomarker-based patient stratification enabled by a national eHealth infrastructure. We connect SME and multinational industry partners with leading Irish scientists in neurological investigation and a research-active clinical network to design and deliver patient-centred translational research.
